THIS Is What We're Complaining About?

Apparently all else is right with the world, so the snowflakes can whinge about inability to refuel.

Legal weed is hard to come by in Alaska
There's no legal marijuana for sale in Fairbanks. 
All three stores – Pakalolo Supply Co., Frozen Budz, and GoodSinse – have shut their doors as they wait for more cannabis to hit the wholesale market. 
"We left Fairbanks dry," said Destiny Neade, Frozen Budz co-owner. 
Across Alaska, a shortage of commercial cannabis has caused stores to close temporarily or open only in short spurts as product becomes available and is quickly bought up. 
In Fairbanks, Frozen Budz has been closed for about a month, and will likely stay shut until the end of January, Neade said.
 
Give. Me. A. Break.  There's more, but I can't bring myself to paste it here. It would seem that the problems of ISIS, terrorists in northern Mexico preparing to attack southern border cities in the U.S., the protests, an upcoming inauguration ... none of those things matter as much. If at all.
 
Sigh ...

Maybe they can be convinced to go looking for some in the back country and Darwin will take care of it...

As with much of the rest of the Republic, thoughts on this are divided. Those who support MJ use are either 'true believers', who see it as a medical panacea for all ills - menstrual cramps to PTSD.
And, for some, it seems to work. OR
There's a whole 'nother set of users. They may-or-may-not get some medical benefit from it, but, they also just like getting high.
Both sets want us to believe EVERYBODY does it.

Everybody does not...

I'm a capitalist. Let the marketplace set the cost and tone.

Let's see what happens...

Guffaw, you'll notice that I didn't argue the merits of marijuana use. I only complained about the fuss they make when it's in short supply.
